Gemstones are so durable
A few are mineraloids not true minerals and are including here: opal, amber, and moldavite. Foremost is durability - it must not easily corrode away, nor can it be brittle. It is so durable that nearly all of the gold ever mined is still in circulation or storage. In some cases, the names are true misnomers, such as Green Amethyst for prasiolite-a transparent green variety of quartz.
In most cases, these variety names are historical, as the gemstones were not recognized as being varieties of other minerals until well after the name was in common use such as aquamarine, emerald, and heliodor as varieties of beryl. And that is related to the third characteristic, ductility. You can see the options are endless and when you are commissioning a piece, why compromise a thing when you can choose!
Gemstones weakest areas of a man's body
When a man wears this stone either as a necklace or a bracelet, it helps the masculine juices flow so that he can really feel like a man. This often helps more when it comes to the male sexual energy because it gives them so much more than just the need to have sexual relations.
A green tourmaline necklace is said to increase a man's need to love, feel, and dominate without having any type of insecurities that usually hold most men back. The gemstone is said to work on the weakest areas of a man's body and soul first in order to balance his whole soul so that he can give off that aura of self-confidence, knowledge, and male libido.
